I got pregnant back in 2012.And my freckles got worse (in my opinion).I always like clear skin and this freckles bothers me a lot.So did so many researches and decided to do Chemical peel(since I have brown skin,IPL is not for me???? that's what I heard).I was so confused,I didn't know which treatment to do(after all it's on my face).So after many researches I went to Skintology and I had a free consultation with aesthetician Yana and she explained and suggested to do Chemical peel to remove my freckles.And I decided to take the chance and do it to see if I can get my dream clear skin.

My skin after chemical peel

My skin definitely looks brighter and the freckles r lighter than before.This was my first treatment of chemical peel.I am happy with the result and want to go for next one ,hoping the best so far it's all good.But hate the fact how it peels and I was embarrassed to go outside.Since the weather is cold so it helped me cover my face and neck with a scarf and hat.


Thank you for sharing your review with RealSelf.  The after peeling would definitely be the hard part.  How long did this continue?

Hey there!Did you mean the peeling?If yes then it's not the same for everyone since we all have different skin type.Mine cleared out within 7 days.I am waiting to do the next one but it has to be 4-6 weeks apart.
Yes, that's what I meant.  I bet that seven days felt like and eternity!

After 15 days

I definitely need to do 3-4 times to remove all the freckles I have on my face but so far I loved the result from my first one and it inspired me and gave me hope to to few more.The freckles on my skin looks a little lighter and My skin looks even tone wise.


I got this peel treatment done yesterday it was quite red yesterday and today its just a tone lighter I am very scared cz I had no major acne but just few acne spots what do I do? I am just 22
